COVID-19 Library Update


(Glencoe, IL ― May 1, 2020) In keeping with other sensible measures to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Glencoe Public Library will remain closed to the public through Sunday, May 31st, 2020. The library board will reassess the opening date as events unfold.

All programs scheduled through the end of August have been postponed or canceled. All services are suspended during the closure. Library staff will work to determine what can be offered virtually and will continue to check email messages.

Glencoe patrons are urged to make the most of its online and streaming options, many of which are being expanded to meet greater need. See the library’s website (Digital Content/Books, Movies & More) for the full array of offerings and instructions on how to access them.

For news about expanded remote options and other ways the library continues to work on behalf of its community, patrons are encouraged to read the library’s weekly e-newsletter, which is delivered on Mondays to those who sign up for it. “The e-newsletter is going to be our primary means of communicating updates and changes during this challenging time,” says executive director Andrew Kim. Those who do not currently receive the e-newsletter may sign up on the home page of the library’s website.

Patrons are welcome to hold onto checked-out materials until the library re-opens. No overdue fines will accrue and all due dates have been extended. The book drop on the west side of the building will remain open. Any holds placed through inter-library loan will be filled when normal operations resume. Advantage copies of bestsellers, which give priority to Glencoe residents on popular e-book and e-audiobook titles, will continue to be monitored.

The Glencoe Public Library is located at 320 Park Avenue, Glencoe, IL 60022. Phone: (847) 835-5056. Web:
